my 7 mo old has little red bumps... what are they??

i know its not hives or anything like that... but on his torso, he has little red pimple looking things, they aren't pimples, and there aren't enough to be a rash i don't think.. i heard its just baby rash, their skin adjusting and stuff..... so what is it??!! should i worry or get it looked at? it doesn't bother him... i don't think its serious...

  • no... i'm breastfeeding... and i haven't switched anything... i guess maybe he's worn a couple of shirts that i haven't washed after i bought them.. (not second hand, brand new) but i guess those have chemicals on them...

  • Is he on any meds? Did you eat anything different that passed through the milk? Sounds like a contact rash, clothes, couch, blanket, etc. Is he sick at all? Did he have a fever recently?

  • Could be a heat rash, body tends to get hotter when the baby is asleep. My sons had lil heat rash when they slept. I had to lower the temp and put them in cooler sleepers.
